The recently re-branded DTGen, formerly Dieselec Thistle Generators, has delivered a record year – growing sales 15% to reach turnover of £16.4m.
The business attributed this success to a number of key factors including its increased focus on the aftermarket sector (servicing, maintenance and parts) and temporary power solutions. In addition, DTGen also launched a range of gas-fuelled generators to the UK market and formed a strategic partnership to supply combined heat and power (CHP) co-generation plant.
On-going investment across these areas has also created a number of new jobs including a new Aftermarket Director, Billy Myers, and increasing the number of employees from 56 to 80 in the past 12 months.
The business has also continued to successfully win and complete a number of major contracts including the new £14m energy centre at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton-on-Tees, NHS Orkney’s new £64million healthcare facility ‘The Balfour’, and HSBC UK’s new headquarters in Birmingham, as well as framework contracts for Network Rail, Scottish Water and Iberdrola.
Paul Moore, Managing Director, said: “As demand for standby power in the UK grows, we are continuing to find new and improved ways to provide resilient power supplies to our customers. Our business has been expanding geographically, and as we have been adding new products and services to our portfolio, we wanted to be sure that our name is reflective of the way we do business now and in the future. We are delighted to be unveiling our new brand as we report on a successful year that demonstrates our approach is being welcomed by the market.”
